In the case of Samsung, they have not wanted to wait and have made official their new smartwatch, the Gear S2. They are betting, like so many, by circular design and two variants for audiences with different interests and objectives. A year later, after the first Samsung Gear S reaches the successor, with many changes and focusing on a much more minimalist, classic and modern design at a time, leaving aside the square form factor that ended up not convincing many users of Android.

The big news is that it will not use Android Wear as other smartwatches, instead, it will not for a proprietary operating system called Tizen. It seems that this same connectivity limited only by matching them with Samsung devices, so if you want to make with it, you may purchase some other terminal of the company.
